Pretty, gritty and in between.
Gustav Wiking’s photography to ask us to consider more deeply man’s place in life and in the world. Juxtaposing subjects with an articulate and unique intuition, the Swedish born artist has an undeniable talent for creating visual poetry.
He brings landscape together with portraiture, nature with the manmade. The result is sophisticated, daydream-provoking imagery that reveals a certain psychological insight into what he’s studying. And Gustav illuminates his subjects with exceptional depth and detail: a woman falling through the depths of the ocean; high-rise buildings towering above a stunning turquoise shoreline. All artworks tell a nuanced story, and it’s impossible not to be swept up.
